This morning, we officially launched VisualBlogger 2004 Beta 2. I talked about it a bit earlier over on my corporate blog. We've made some nifty changes, so if you want to find out more, head on over. I did want to mention here that we now support dasBlog, Radio, TypePad, and BlogWare, with more to come.
Along with this new release, I'm launching a new contest. VisualBlogger 2004 needs a logo. Since I don't have time or the skills to make one myself, and I don't want to hire anyone to do it, I figured it would be a cool contest. The prize is your choice of any Interscape product, or a copy of the PDC 2003 Highlights DVD. Oh yeah, and the winner will get a free copy of VisualBlogger 2004 when we do a final release in late July, early August. Here are the criteria:
- Must fit in with Interscape's look and feel. See the logos at http://www.interscapeusa.com/Products for more information.
- Submission must include a text logo with some kind of graphic. Graphic must be easily distinguishable in large scale for the website and splashscreen, as well as in small scale for the program, document, and system tray icons.
- Submission must convey the purpose of VisualBlogger, so that you can tell what it does by looking at the logo.
- Winning submission must be accompanied by the original source file in either Photoshop or Illustrator. No other drawing program formats will be accepted.
To partipate, create your entry, upload it to the site of your choice, and link to it with your name and contact information in the comments of this entry. The contest will run through June 15th, and later if I have to. I'm looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with. Should be fun!
At any rate, sign up for the VisualBlogger 2004 Beta 2 today and let me know what you think.
